    Default Stuffed Cabbage Soup

    Stuffed Cabbage Soup


    Recipe Description
    The easiest soup I've ever made. DH swears it tastes
    just like his Mother's cabbage balls/rolls, except it's a
    soup!
    Preparation Steps:
    Not much;

    1) slice cabbage

    2) make a pot of rice in a big pot. How much rice
    really depends on you and your dietary restrictions.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    All day
    Ingredients:
    1 lb. of ground
    turkey, pork or beef.

    1 large can of
    tomato paste

    1 head of cabbage,
    sliced.

    salt/pepper

    rice

    water
    Serves:
    Makes a massive pot of soup
    Directions:
    1) In a BIG crockpot break up the raw ground meat
    so it does not cook in one big clump.

    2) Put in tomato paste by the spoonful

    3) put cabbage on top.

    4) fill crock with water

    5) season just with salt

    6) Cook on low all day, then adjust seasonings
    adding pepper and more salt if needed.

    7) Pour crock of soup over cooked rice in big pot, or
    serve over rice in bowls.

    Absolutely, but I'd keep the rice out. I plan on doing just that with garden harvest. I'll be using garden tomatoes instead of tomato paste. I just will not be putting the rice in until I'm ready to thaw and reheat. Now the rice may freeze just fine in the soup, but I think my family will prefer the texture of the soup better if I add the rice at the end.

    The thing about this soup is just how good it is as leftovers. Something about the rice and the tomato marrying that really makes it great.

    I made this today and all I can say is OMG it was delicious. I did add about 1/2 of a vadalia onion I needed to use. I used 1/2 lb beef and 1/2 lb sausage.

    I was able to freeze app. 4 containers for later use plus some in the fridge for now.

    It was easy peasy to make.
